I all ready fired off a letter to both the State Attorney general and my local DA. I realize that the state wants people to think it is talking about two separate issues but in the Statutue they are treated the same. It says pretty clearly in a school or on the grounds of the school you are legal as long as you have a Weapon Carry Permit from the State of WI or another state.
Thanks Ghost Tracker, I am going to wait and see what the lawyers say first before sending any other letters out.
The options for such a contract would be virtually unlimited. In addition to an arbitrary fee, which the amount of could be anything, a parent could be required to be an active member of the PTA, volunteer X hours for events, and their children must maintain a certain GPA or higher.
If you want to approach your local admin, speaking money will get you further than everything else.
No spell-checker with Tapatalk, sorry.
It is a crime to possess a dangerous weapon (other than a firearm or BB or pellet gun) on or in any school building, school grounds, recreation area, athletic field or any other property owned, used or operated for school administration. Wis. Stat. § 948.61.
However you are allowed to drive a motor vehicle in which a dangerous weapon is located onto school premises for school-sanctioned purposes or for the purpose of delivering or picking up passengers or property. The weapon may not be removed from the vehicle or be used in any manner.

I believe when they are speaking of a contract they are referring to an actual contractor such as a plumber doing work at the school and not simply trying to buy your way into carrying a firearm on school property. Donations are exactly that money given with zero expectation of something in return. Giving a donation as suggested by someone with the expectation of being given a contract to carry a firearm on school property would be considered a bribe and is a felony under state law.
Donating time to the school again goes back to expecting something in return not to mention when other parents find out that dad is donating his time to the field trip in exchange for his "contract" to carry a firearm, it would last about 12 minutes after the press got ahold of it and the school admin guy was fired.
The parent would be required to become a member of the PTA? You are kidding right? So in exchange for this contract the parent would be required to become a member of one of the most publically anti gun, political organizations in the country? I can just see that first PTA meeting where dad shows up armed.
Their children would have to maintain a certain GPA? LOL and what if JR messes up and dad loses his contract to carry a weapon on school property not to mention the child rights groups that would become involved when it is brought out that JR is being forced to maintain a certain GPA so dad can carry a gun at school. I guess he would not have to worry long as they would probably take away his child and prevent him from being withing 500 feet of his school.
Any contract entered into with a Government i.e. "the school" would have to be brought before the school board in a public setting and voted upon requiring a majority vote to pass. I don't see this happening, but I could be wrong of course you can do as someone suggested and slip some money on the table and see if you can get your contract.
You do what you want to luckily some have a sig line that clearly states they do not give legal or firearms advice.
"A first rate man with a third rate gun is far better than the other way around". The gun is a tool, you are the craftsman that makes it work. There are those who say "if I had to do it, I could" yet they never go out and train to do it. Don't let stupid be your mindset. Harryball 2013
All that Statute for Concealed Carry allows is that if you are within 1000 feet of a school,or on the grounds in a vehicle to pick up a student then you are exempt from 948.605.
There is no way you are going to legally carry a concealed firearm into any School buildings unless you are an LEO.

I also have a pretty good feeling that your request to carry on school grounds will be filed in the trash and you will come of looking more like someone who should not carry than a responsible permit holder.
There is a on going struggle going on in this country to keep our 2nd Amendment Rights. What is not needed is for us not to follow our respective state laws and carry where ever and when ever we want. All it will take is one instance and the gun haters of this country will be on our "tails" like flies on honey.
Just leave your side arm in the car or home when going to see the kids in a school function on school grounds.
